Sealed 1980 Original. Features Pepper Adams, Mel Lewis, Rufus Reid, Dick Katz, Joe Puma And Ron McClure. Recorded At RCA Studios. “The Third Collaboration Between Singer Helen Merrill And Pianist/Arranger Dick Katz Is At The Level Of Their First Two. A Tribute Both To George Gershwin And Charlie Parker, Merrill Performs Eight Of The Former's Songs, A Couple Of Which Became Bird Tunes With New Melody Lines ("Embraceable You" Is Transformed Into "Quasimodo," While "I Got Rhythm" Becomes "Chasin' The Bird"). Baritonist Pepper Adams, Guitarist Joe Puma, Bassist Rufus Reid And Drummer Mel Lewis Join Katz In The Quintet, And Throughout, Merrill Is Heard In Prime Form. Pity That This Worthwhile And Rare LP Has Not Been More Popular.” Scott Yanow, AMG.
